OK, it’s albums, records, concerts time. I’m about as completely out of the loop on the so-called popular so-called music front as it’s possible to be – I think the one 2005 record I’ve heard this year is the new Laura Cantrell album (thanks, Sarah), which really isn’t a lot to be going on when assembling a general survey of the field of contemporary cultural production, so do tell me what I missed. The concert I remember enjoying a lot was probably the Newcastle Bach Choir performing Handel’s Belshezzar, with a bunch of fine soloists including Emma Kirkby. Not sure what else I went to over the course of the year. There was probably something.
